  • My kitten was 5 months old when he was weaned off the bottle. He was so attached to it. He lived to almost 18 years. His name was mouse.

  • I know it’s super late but what do you do whenever you have a kittens that will eat beautifully one time and then the next time you feed them it’s like they completely forgot how to eat 🤦‍♀️ I feel like I’ve tried just about everything: Offering in a syringe rather than a bottle using the same nipple, heating the formula, cooling the formula, stimulating to Pee or Poo, Burping, brushing or petting To try and wake them up and get the little systems up and running. I don’t really know what I’m doing wrong, or I may get a perfect suction for like two seconds and then they lose it and never be able to get it back. 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️ It’s so frustrating because I feel like I’m starving them and I know they’re frustrated too.

  • Thank you so much for your videos. I was up until 2 am last night trying to feed a "Tasmanian devil" I finally Googled it and found this video. We have had success with the tricks here. I had read to stimulate them to potty *before* feedings which was stressing him out and I think that caused our issue. Feeding him when he first wakes up he is calm and gentle instead of spazzing out

  • I just rescued a super newborn kitten, less than a week old (I suspect maybe a few days) and I don’t have that special nipple for syringe feeding and of course he won’t accept the bottle bc the nipple is so big! What can I do? He simply won’t eat and I can’t find a veterinarian who knows what to do either 😭😭😭 please help

  • Once I settle into my own home in a few months, implant to foster. The wee ones need us. Your video on limping calici was very helpful earlier this year. Thank you for such a helpful video. Had cold water bottles out all the time for six kittens and two adults. Everyone came through, but it was rough for a few. I had to cancel their vaccinations until they were healthy.

  • Hannah, I wanted to say thank you for this video and all the time and effort you’ve taken to make all your videos. We found a 10day kitten abandoned in our garden, we were certain it was alone and had been there a while. We took him to the vet immediately and then he was given back to us to be cared for once the vet was happy no serious issues. Your videos have helped us so much and have no doubt saved our kitten’s life. Thank you for all your wonderful efforts to help save lives. You’re a beautiful human and I’m very thankful to you! Warm regards, Alex x

  • This was a lifesaver!!! Thank you, I’m loving your videos and advice! I’m fostering abandoned kittens and I have one that is very aggressive with her paws and claws and we just couldn’t get a rhythm for her feeding. The swaddling and cuddling a stuffed toy as well as feeding her in her bed instead of my lap really made a difference. I feel like she is bonding with me more now that we have figured some ways out around our struggles. I saved 3 little lives with tips and education and you gotta feel good about that! I want them to have the best life possible ❤️

  • My cat had kittens two days ago and one of the males, he was the biggest when he was born and now he’s lost over 10 grams. He won’t latch onto a nipple to eat, we’ve tried bottle feeding, syringe feeding but nothing is working all he’s done is aspirate formula. I don’t have a job yet (I’ve just turned 18) and my father won’t take him to the vet because he thinks the kittens just gonna die anyway. I have no idea what to do, I’m afraid he’s gonna be gone soon.

PS i already feed it with that but it seem a bit awakard .. maybe because I fed it 2 times only... any advice thanks a lot.

  • I have a kitten. My dog found this little baby and brought it in the house!! I have no idea where the momma or other babies are! So, I am going to feed him and keep. I CANNOT get him to take a bottle. He will take the nipple a few seconds then reject it. The only way I can get him to eat is by putting the kitten formula on the back of my hand and letting him lick it. I wrapped him in a blanket. I had my hand on his chest just under his chin. He started nibbling my hand. So, I put the formula there and he ate more than I have been able to get him to eat! Now, he is sleeping like a baby.

  • Hello. My baby kitten is 3 weeks old. She was latching and drinking comfortably 2 days back but now she is a little reluctant. She may be facing a viral infection for which we are giving her medicine. She has reduced the feed she takes and is also slightly reluctant. We can not tube feed her right now as no vet cleanics are open during lockdown where we can go. Can you please advise what to do to ease the process and help provide her nutrition while she slowely recovers from viral infection.

  • Hi, I just took in 3 kittens, they were meowing too much, so I just took em in. Tried to feed them. Two of them drank some diluted milk, that's what I had on had at 2 am in the night. I thought they were hungry. Right now, after 2 hrs. They're asleep. You're videos are a great help. I'll check them for fleas and stuff tomorrow. Any tips on what I should do. This is my first time and my kids have grown older, so no baby blankets available.
